• ½ cup water (118ml)
• ½ cup granulated sugar (100g)
• 3 ½ cups fresh cranberries 12 oz bag or 340g, rinsed and patted dry (pick over the berries and discard any wrinkled/bad ones)
• 1 ½ cups granulated sugar (300g)
In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stir together water and ½ cup (100g) sugar until sugar is completely dissolved (this will take several minutes.
Add cranberries and stir until all berries have been coated all over with the simple syrup mixture.
Use a slotted spoon to carefully remove cranberries from the syrup and lay on a wire cooling rack. Try to space them so they’re not touching. Allow to dry for 1 hour before proceeding.
Place remaining granulated sugar in a bowl and, working in batches, toss cranberries in the sugar until well-coated all over. Return to wire rack and dry for another hour before using.
Place sugared cranberries in a serving bowl and enjoy!
